I received a set of instructions via email detailing the procedure. They were well written and easy to understand - thanks. However - I cannot get past the “No programming board found” message. I tried the troubleshooting tips (including downloading the USB-to-Serial driver - no luck.
I did try to use the cord from my phone handset instead of the programming cable - the clip on the end is broken and it won’t stay firmly seated in the outlet on the PIC. Could that be a problem? The Device Manager recognizes it properly - but when I choose the COMM port number and click “download”, I receive the “not found” message.
Any other suggestions? Could the PIC somehow be damaged ? Thanks.
